UCI's licensing officers help campus researchers protect their inventions

They call it “the baby monitor,” but it’s nothing like the ones sold at Babies “R” Us that alert parents when junior’s crying in his crib.

Developed by UC Irvine pediatrics professor Dr. Dan Cooper, the sophisticated wireless device can detect subtle movements in infants that signal increased risk of cerebral palsy, autism and other neurological disorders. It’s outfitted with a sensor created by Pai Chou, UCI associate professor of electrical engineering & computer science, and it has a special application to warn of sudden infant death syndrome.

New Engineering Dean Gears Up for Fiscal Challenge

Skilled in adaptative research, Gregory Washington has a mission: partner or perish

Gregory Washington, UC Irvine’s new dean of The Henry Samueli School of Engineering, knows the mechanics of staying cool under pressure.

An accomplished systems engineer, Washington researches “smart” materials that respond to temperature changes, stretching and other stimuli, and which can be used for everything from heating car seats to harvesting energy from computers to recharge batteries.

“If you pull on them, press them or otherwise strain them, they actually will produce electricity,” he explains. “So any entity that’s vibrating or moving, I can extract energy from it and then use that for a very useful purpose.”
